Ins(Paper)ation – Creation Journal Project

The process of inspiration is very mysterious to me. Whenever I try to discover where I get my inspiration I find out it never comes from one place and it always a collection of circumstances, images and experiences. Take the next project for example.

I wanted for some time to create a Creation Journal for myself, a journal to write all my creative and thoughts and ideas. The only problem was I never got the inspiration to create it or the idea of how I wanted it to look. Then a chain of events started:
first, I took this photo of a Wagtail (I love this bird),

Then I got the chance to work with the Noteworthy Trees fabulous paper by Magenta and the new cork self adhesive Birds & Branches stickers. Suddenly it was there, an idea for my Creation Journal!

I first covered an old notebook with the patterned paper. Then I added texture and embellishments. I started with applying white shimmer on the paper and then stamped on it. I added a cork bird sticker and gold leafs. On the bottom of the cover I created grass by adhering crumpled green paper with a little more shimmer. I added cork flowers and dew drops.
